Presentation: "Distributed, Real-time Web Apps with Stack.io"

Time: Wednesday 16:00 - 16:50

Location: Bayview

Stack.io is an open-source communication framework to help rapidly build real-time web applications as a collection of services. By providing configuration-free service-to-service and service-to-front-end messaging via WebSockets, Stack.io makes it easy to decompose complex code into functionally simple components in a flexible, language-agnostic way. It augments the standard RPC model with bi-directional streaming, and provides a layer of auth and service discovery on top.
